Today the vet is going to come and put my yellow lab, Harry to sleep. He's 13 years old, and we all think it's for the best. He still enjoys our company, but he difficulty moving, and he's become quite senile. The vet suspects that it isn't too much longer before he would start having seizures, so we want to help him to go out gracefully. We've kept him going for a while with pain meds and everything, but it looks like it's finally time.
So I have a question for all of you who have had a dog put to sleep- what do you do with your other dog(s)? Is it best to keep them away for the entire thing, or give them a chance to give the other dog one last sniff? Since we're going to have it take place in our home, I just wanted to know... We either need to keep the other dog (Eddie) away until Harry is gone and has been removed, or give her a chance to see him after... Anyone have experience with this?
